Hello, I am new to this forum and am very delighted there exists a place for homeowners to ask questions.
We are restoring a fairly small 1920's colonial and have run into a problem with a the ceiling in our entryway. It is roughly 6' x 6' and in pretty good shape. Some of the existing paint- flat, white- was chipping so I scraped it away. So I have roughly 7 or 8 bare spots of roughly 5" x maybe 4 or 5". Underneath the paint it looks to be an old plaster coating, but I am not knowledgeable enough to know. The rest of the ceiling is in good shape and not in need of scraping, just light sanding and priming. What should I do in order that the whole ceiling has an even look when done? Plaster the smallish areas, prime two coats to get it even?
I hope my description was adequate enough for someone to offer assistance. I am somewhat new at the language necessary to describe some problems. Thanks in advance for any help and I look forward to learning more.
